What running is to me πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ

HELLO THERE πŸ‘‹! I’m sure you are all staying safe and well πŸ’•. I wanted to share what running is to me πŸ˜ƒ.

Now, I’m not the type of runner who just completely loves running and everything about it. I have struggled with running a bit to be honest πŸ˜‚. Ever since last year when I developed post viral bronchiole hyper reactivity ( it sound more complicated than it really is). Basically, after a chest infection my bronchioles narrowed down making it pretty difficult to breathe 😬. People often call this the hallmark of asthma which I think is because you can pretty easily develop asthma after this.

Anyway… back to the topic πŸ˜‚. It’s been pretty difficult to get back to sports as a whole and many other activities. Especially because I’m not the type of person to really admit if I’m finding something difficult or I need my inhaler ( or at least I wasn’t). Which is because I didn’t really want to continue to have problems, so I mostly just ignored it πŸ˜‚. But then I sort of realised that the only way to get back to normal was to work back to it. ( if that even makes sense?)

So I went back about 1 or 2 months later to a running track… and I had an asthma attack 😬. So I didn’t want to go again. And I haven’t run at that exact track since, or any for that matter, I’m not 100% sure why. But lately I’ve been working towards my running a lot. And I’ve been running basically every day … partly because I’m bored πŸ˜‚.

And I can’t say that when I start a run I’m completely motivated because usually I’m like… why am I doing this again? But on the last stretch of my run, it feels like an accomplishment. So I don’t run because I just genuinely really love it, I would say I run, and do most other sports because you get a sense of achievement and a great feeling too. Not only that, but when running you can kind of clear your mind and for me I don’t really focus on anything else. This may sound a bit weird, but at first I focus on my breathing and then everything just fades away and… I’m not really thinking about anything πŸ˜‚.

So yeah😁! I hope you enjoyed my slightly weird, hopefully inspirational thought process. Have a great day or night wherever you are πŸ’•. Do you like running? What sports do you play? Do you enjoy sports, why?

  1. I totally understand what you mean about at first asking yourself why your running but, then at the end feeling accomplishment and happy. When you run it’s almost like you go through stages: at first your happy and run as fast as you can, towards the middle you feel like giving up and at the end is when you feel like you can do this all day.
    I’m sorry that you had an asthma attack when running. That must have been a scary experience. Funnily enough, I began running because growing up I had asthma. My parents believed running would maybe help me learn to control my breathing and that’s when I fell in love with running. It’s great that you’ve been running daily, isn’t running extremely liberating?

  2. I can relate! I love exercising as well because not only does it keep my mind off of things but it the sense of accomplishment after pushing through with a commitment you made with yourself is fulfilling! Keep it up!
